This is a great hem. In my garden, it's always a med/dark rose colour. It shows no rust. It bloomed early, then before the last buds finished it shot up another scape. Opens perfectly and lasts well in the sun. Also does fairly well in very heavy rain.
Another attribute is that it is often half open for a day looking deep rose. Then the following day it is often fully recurved as per my pics.
